Prize recognizes female emerging theatre director
Nominations for the sixth annual Gina Wilkinson Prize will be accepted beginning October 15, 2016. Established in memory of director Gina Wilkinson, the prize recognizes an experienced female theatre artist transitioning from one theatre discipline to the discipline of theatre direction.
Nominees must be members of the Canadian professional theatre community and Canadian citizens or have permanent resident status. Preference will be shown to nominees who have spent several years in a theatre discipline other than directing (acting, stage management, design, theatre administration, etc.) and are now transitioning into directing.
Nomination deadline: December 15, 2016.
Recipient announced March 10, 2017 and a prize of $5000 will be awarded.
The nomination should consist of:
- A nomination letter in support of the nominee by a recognized theatre professional.
- An acknowledgement of the nomination by the nominee, along with a brief outline of their artistic vision, and how Gina’s Prize might assist them in furthering their practice in this time of transition.
- The nominee’s resume.
Anyone wishing to re-nominate their past nominee is encouraged to do so.
